Nielsens in Brookside...and The Plaza !
Home Sweet Home, Brookside is so much fun for me! My parents started Nielsens
Exclusive Gifts in 1946 in the little rental house at 3515 South Peoria. My dad
designed the large showroom which is right at the bottom of the stairs of the
porch! Yes, the house is still there! Come and see it!
Nielsens went on to open at Southroads Mall when it opened and then Nielsens
went to the Plaza at 81st and Lewis when Southroads closed as a mall. Nielsens
is still at The Plaza and now at 3515 South Peoria too!
It is really fun being in the space where I grew up. There are definitely good
When visiting Nielsens at 3515 South Peoria you can park in the back and go in
our back entrance or park street side and come in the front door. I woke up one
morning before we opened and got a feeling to call AT&T about our original
phone number- it was available! So the number at Nielsens Brookside is again
918-747-4141. Of course that used to be RI 7-4141. Do you remember those prefixes???

Yesterday a lovely customer visited Nielsens in Brookside. Mrs. Hearn first
shopped there in the 1948 and is a new again customer in Brookside today...she
is 100! George said she must be lying about her age- she was so energetic! Her
first purchase was a lamp... Dorothy Nielsen made a beautiful shade for Mrs.
Hearn and their new home. Today, Nielsens Gifts in Brookside has some of the
most beautiful lamps made in America... come in to see.
Love to you all! We love making memories with you through your thoughtful gift
giving! Andrea Nielsen
